All of the Bible scriptures used on this website are from the King James Version Bible.

This is not an official Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints website.
It has been created and produced by Phil Michel.

The Bible and The Book of Mormon are historical testaments of Jesus Christ.
As Scripture they both testify that
Jesus is the Christ manifesting himself unto all nations.

The Bible record deals mainly with events that took place in the 
Eastern Hemisphere from about 4000 B.C. to 96 A.D.   
The Book of Mormon record deals mainly with events that took place in the Western Hemisphere from about 2500 B.C. to 421 A.D. 
2 Nephi 29:1-14   Date 559-545 B.C.

<< Jesus Christ showing "the prints of the nails" his hands to a group of Nephites in the land Bountiful after his resurrection.  (3 Nephi 11:14)  Date 34 A.D. 
 
 
A portion of one of the events when the Savior came to the Americas can be found in 3 Nephi 17:5-10  Date 34 A.D.   
----------------------
 Even though these ancient Book of Mormon people were blessed with a personal visit from Jesus Christ to them they, Both the light skinned Nephites and the dark skinned Lamanites,  fell away from a correct understanding of the pure gospel and teachings of the Jesus Christ within 400 years.

“They were once a delightsome people, and they had Christ for their shepherd; yea, they were led even by God the Father.”  (Mormon 5:17380-384 A.D.
“O ye fair ones, how could ye have departed from the ways of the Lord! O ye fair ones, how could ye have rejected that Jesus, who stood with open arms to receive you!”  (Mormon 6:17380-384 A.D.

 <<  Spanish conquistadors and their native Tlaxcalan allies entering the Aztec capital city of Tenochtitlan.
<< In the early 1500’s, the Spanish conquistadors, explorers and representatives of the Catholic Church came into the Aztec, Maya, and Inca civilizations of the New World. They indeed discovered a ‘fallen people’.
   

  << Cortez meets Montazoma, 1550 A.D. Aztec drawing.

"O our Lord,” [Quetzalcoatl] “... you have come to sit on your throne...for sometime my heart has been looking [for your return] in the direction... from within the clouds...." "The kings who are gone said that you would come to rule...and assume your throne..."
Montezuma asked our Captain to be seated..."saying that he would give us of all that he possessed...." (Folorentine Codex,The Nahuatl Accounts of the Conquest of Mexico, p. 117, Book 12.) 

 The Aztec, Maya, and Inca people were expecting the return of a God who their ancestors once believed in.   That God was Jesus Christ.

----------
If they were once a "delightsome people and had Christ for their shepherd"   
(Mormon 5:17) 
then I would think there should be some evidence that such was the case.

----------------------    
We in our day, understand that the symbol or icon of a cross represents a belief in Jesus Christ and his death upon the cross.

<<A statue of Quetzalcoatl with holes in the palms of his hands.
 Information about the resurrected Jesus Christ's visit to the Western Hemisphere still remained among the native people in 1492 A.D. 
The Aztecs called this God who visited their ancestors  
Quetzalcoatl. 
Quetzalcoatl, or the resurrected Jesus Christ, came down out of the sky with the same holes in the palms of his hands that he had received when nailed upon the cross at Calvary.  The resurrected Jesus Christ showed the prints of the nails in his hands to his Apostles and others in the Eastern Hemisphere. (John 20:19-27 & Matthew 27:53)
The Savior also showed his hands to a group of Nephites in the Western Hemisphere.  
"Arise and come forth...that ye may feel the prints of the nails in my hands..." 
(3 Nephi 11:14)

<< Hieroglyph, from the ancient city of Yaxchilán, Mexico.  Dated 350-850 A.D. 
In the pre-Columbus Western Hemisphere, the coming of the resurrected Jesus Christ to the Nephites was paramount.  There are many pre-Columbus icon artifacts that have been found in Mesoamerica representing the resurrected Savior's hands carved in stone.    The different statutes, icons, symbols and hieroglyphs convey a knowledge of the Savior's hands with
the prints of the nails in Jesus Christ's hands.    
These carvings give incredible archaeological evidence and testify to the world that the resurrected Jesus Christ did come to the Western Hemisphere in 34 A.D. as recorded in the Book of Mormon.

 << President Ezra Taft Benson, a latter-day Prophet of God, in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
“We invite all men everywhere to read the Book of Mormon, another testament of Jesus Christ.  The Bible sits on the pulpit of hundreds of different religious sects.  The Book of Mormon... verifies and clarifies the Bible.   It removes stumbling blocks; it restores many plain and precious things. We testify that when used together, the Bible and The Book of Mormon confound false doctrines, lay down contentions, and establish peace.
  [See 2 Nephi 3:12.]   
We do not have to prove [that] the Book of Mormon is true.  The book is its own proof.  All we need to do is read it...! 
The Book of Mormon is a "second witness for Christ".  (President Ezra Taft Benson, Oct. 1984 Gen. Conference)

Archaeology is in fact, physical evidence that supports the truthfulness of historical events. 

         ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
No level of evidence is going to be sufficient for someone who does not exercise faith and who does not want to believe.

No amount of evidence will ever be enough to convince anyone that the Book or Mormon or the Bible is true, without direct revelation to that individual  “by the power of the Holy Ghost”, as the following scriptures thus indicate.  (Moroni 10:3-5)   (James 1:5-6) & (Matthew 7:7-11)
---------
The prophet Nephi foretold that many would harden their hearts against additional Book of Mormon scripture.  In his closing statements before his death, he recorded the following:
“…behold, there are many that harden their hearts against the Holy Spirit, that it hath no place in them; wherefore, they cast many things away which are written and esteem them as things of naught.”   (2 Nephi 33:2 559 B.C. to 545 B.C.
-----------
God has given us our freedom to entertain beliefs contrary to facts if we choose to do so.
Facts are stubbron little things.  What we do with them is our choice.
